principal of countless ceos from general election to google. well the republicans may need a knew principal. remember these numbers? 42 million versus 24 million. those numbers are from a bloomberg study showing over the last 50 years, democrats created nearly twice as many jobs as republicans did. that is significant data. those are some cold hard facts. well today, that data got stronger. the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8%, which is the lowest since the president first took office. sure, i know. we need to do better, but the data is the data. progress is being made. the president's strategies are moving us in the right direction. that is the data, those are the facts. but republicans don't like those facts, so they are either undermining the recovery as mitt romney did today when he said this. >> romney: the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact more and more people have just stopped looking for work. but if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as when the president got elected our unemployment would be around 11%

thought we elected. how does that play with them? >> i quite frankly don't think it's that big a deal, really, because we all know in an election campaign, the idea is you have your base. you turn out the base, but then you appeal to others and it's like inviting company over or applying for a job, you want to leave them with the best impression. again, it's not unique to governor romney. president obama will try to do the same thing in deed did so with great success in 2008. i suspect it will be tougher for him this year, though. >> mitt romney made a clear tack to the middle and made remarks about how regulation i guess good and all of that. i mean, you saw it, i'm sure. do you think that that ends up causing some trouble with the far right or the tea party right at all or are people just so excited that he apparently won the debate that it doesn't matter what he's saying now? >> the most strident anti regulation person among us, i guess that would be me understands the need for stop signs and stoplights and dare i say it, even a federal communications commission in terms of frequen

campaigned as governor of massachusetts mitt romney in the general election. he should have -- and he was expected to pivot to that in the general. and the really -- i think profound political question right now is what are the internal dynamics of the republican party because i don't think it is just mitt romney that made a general election candidate with a record like mitt romney's not embrace his own record. i think that's unprecedented in the sense that we expect general election nominees to tack back to the middle. he hasn't and he had a record where he could have. >> eliot: i think he's paying the prying for that. the calculus was this was not a campaign about persuasion. it was about passion and better to dig deeper into the republican party and show the grassroots that they had to get out and vote for the real conservative rather than try to tack to the middle. let's pivot to another issue where mitt romney has been a bit of the etch-a-sketch. immigration. where just today, i think he said he would not go back a

in a town hall-type debate in this election, people want to hear the things they've been seeing about on tv and commercials, the 47% comment cayman islands money being stashed away. mitt romney's not showing his tax returns. do you think that those kinds of issues are going to come up in a town hall debate? >> it's hard to know, you know. town hall debates are really quirky. it is a little hard to know what's going to come out of the mouths of the participants and of course, we haven't actually seen the rules yet. the way they did it last time was the town hall people had to get there in the afternoon a couple of hours early. they wrote out their questions and the moderator picked the questions from what had been submitted. i'm not sure that's the way they're doing it this year but it's a tougher one for the candidates to gain because you can't predict the subject matter. >> jennifer: all right. well that's alan schroeder author of presidential debates 50 years of high-risk tv. thanks so much for joining us inside "the

says. it is the dominant story. i think people are feeling this is one of those elections of a lifetime which vision for america to go to. so it is a lot of hype for this one and there is a feeling now with barack obama up in the polls, three points nationally but up in some -- almost all of the swing states he might be able to close the deal with the american people tomorrow night if he has a good performance. on the other hand, as governor chris christie said over the weekend, if mitt romney comes in and is able to hold his own or even get a few good jabs in, he could get a bit of a bounce. he's been struggling. this is an important debate. the first one's always important. it set acetone and tenor for the others. >> jennifer: i love the fact have these ringside seats for history in the making. have unearthed a radio clip from the very first -- as far as we know, the very first official presidential debate. it was from a primary match-up between thomas dewey and harold stacken in 1948. lea take a -- let's take
